Very nice people, living life so different from ours, in a place even more remote now, as sad news come from Niger, about growing war and rebellion, about mines being laid out in Air Mountains, all out of greed for uranium mining profits. Who knows when I see them again.

NIce color and great expressions of beautiful people. I really like your point of view for the shot but am saddened by your note... You are right greed always affects the innocent.
Great shot and note

Amazing perspective, Swiatek! Looks like you were down inside a well!! ;-)
Excellent decision to go down low. Love it.

Very nice compostion, i like the way you have aligned them to form an archlike pattern, very nicely done,
This is a place that is high on my priority list of places to go.
Do you think it will be increasingly difficult to go there?

This is really cool. I really can't quite figure out how you got this one; it seems they must have been on a platform or something, or maybe you were just that close to the ground. Exposure is great and difficult too I think. I just wish the sky was more interesting, although nothing you could do about that.

supercool! were you using an angle viewfinder? perhaps just a bit off on the color balance (faces seem a bit too yellowish)... maybe i'm just missing your usual "nikon blue" skies and colours, i guess the weather conditions were different here...

These people look very interesting in the photo while they around us.
Also good POV and good subject.
As usual, great work.
